Yes, Yes, we understand, no one else focuses on results the way you do. Look we're all adults and we know its about results. My comment was more in defense of Hyman than Horn. Hyman has brought the results, so why would anyone want to get rid of him over the men's basketball program. To me so long as the other programs continue the track their on I could not care less about men's hoops. I think Horn could still be successful, but he's made a number of mistakes which you could expect based on his lack of experience, but I'm just not sold he's learned fast enough. If he could hire a top assistant I'd be ok with another year, but lets be honest, no one on the staff is a great assistant or capable of helping him along the learning curve he's on. Still think he can be a good coach one day, just not sure we need to invest more into his growth as a coach, with the results we're getting.
i guess the football success and 2 national championships in baseball isn't enough for ya. I want to be good in bball but you can't overlook the success in the other sports and the major facilities overhaul.
No comparison between Hyman and any previous AD.
Unfortunately I'd lay my money that Horn is the head coach here for at least 2 more years. Very possibly 3. I know I won't be buying season tickets again anytime soon if he's still here.
Completely understand, but I'll continue to buy, because the kids are still playing hard, although not well. If they give up, I'll give up, but till then, I'll keep up hope.
I won't buy tickets or go to games bc of Hyman
So your not going to football games then, good, hopefully I cn improve my seats again:-)
Based on his quotes in the paper this morning, sounded like he was blaming the players. That's ridiculous.
Wow. All this hyman hate is ridiculous. You people are embarrassing yourselves.

I'll put money on us having a new coach next season. Hyman is doing the right thing by not publicly bashing horn during the season. This is a responsible move because it shows our next coach that they will be given every opportunity to succeed and the AD will fully support them. They will not be bashed publicly by the AD and will not be fired midseason.
He is setting up to make a move and I have it on good authority that this move will more than likely happen after this season. Dont blame hyman for showing his coaches respect, after all that is what an AD should do.
No. It's not bc I hate Hyman. Not at all. I actually like him by and large. But, when fan support is clearly at or near an all time low for basketball he's telling fans they can see the improvement. Can you imagine what he'd think if ticket sale were stronger and 10,000 fans were showing up to the games? Or if ticket sales increase he's going to believe he was right. By not purchasing tickets and not attending, its my way of being clear about my thoughts on Horn.
Don't hate Hyman.
Hyman will make the move after the season. It's bad leadership to fire a guy after 3 seasons or midway through a year, but I think after the season is the ideal time.
Hyman was given a open check book and SEC money. It's not like he has raised all this money by himself. Not saying I think he should go but everyone acts like we wouldn't have had facility upgrades if Hyman wasn't here which is not true at all.
He's raised more donations than the last three AD's combined and had the guts to implement YES, the checkbook wasn't open, he kicked down the door by leveraging Tanner and Spurrier. If you think our BOT went willingly at first then you don't know Floyd and the boys. Yes they came around to their credit, bt it wasn't as simple as you make it sound.
No we'd have more ad hoc mistakes like the the concrete mistake of the CLA. Carolinavstadium would have been a concrete eye sore if Hyman had insisted on spending more and making it a showcase. mM had no plan, we would have just built a piece here or there, but not the scale of what we are getting and there would never have been a Dodie, neither the donation or beautiful building.
